Arboretum plans second ephemeral art trail

The Crommelin Native Arboretum is planning to run its second Pearl Beach Arboretum Ephemeral Art Trail later this year.

Promoted as PBEAT, the event aims to create inspiring temporary public art that promotes nature conservation, supports community identity and increases the cultural vibrancy, said Arboreum secretary Ms Mary Knaggs.

The theme will be "Only One Earth", which is the theme for World Environment Day this year.

Contributing community members and artists are asked to take inspiration from the local environment of Pearl Beach and the Peninsula.

Ms Knaggs said a first prize of $3000 was being offered as a result of sponsorship, with a $1000 runner-up prize.

"The winners will be judged by the director of the Gosford Art Gallery.

"There will also be a People's Choice Award of $1000."

Ms Knaggs said the event had received funding from Central Coast Council.

Artists can submit a maximum of two art installations, with a submission fee of $30 for one artwork idea or $50 for two ideas.

From the artist submissions about 20 artists works will be selected by our curatorial panel which includes experienced sculptors and art administration professionals, as well as a local Aboriginal community representative.

"Around five community projects will also be supported."

The free event will be open to the public from Saturday, June 11, until Sunday, July 17.

A number of workshops and other events will be held in conjunction with PBEAT.

Expressions of interest from artists close on April 10.
